Alexis to Release Love or Temptation

Written by Nolan Krebs | Monday, 25 August 2014 15:19 |

If you look up Conklin, Mich., on Google Maps, you’ll see a post office, Fenian’s Irish Pub and not a whole lot else. Tucked between some utilitarian-looking shops and a dusty grain elevator, Fenian’s isn’t really where you’d peg a celebrated West Michigan synth-pop group to have come to life.

With an album on the way, The Fever Haze faces a busy month

Written by Jayson Bussa | Wednesday, 23 April 2014 16:39 |

Being a big fish in a small pond can have its upsides. Eclectic rock 'n' rollers The Fever Haze hail from Zeeland, which, as you may have guessed, doesn't boast much of a (read: any) music scene. Even the scene in nearby Holland has witnessed better days.

Jucifer: The World's Loudest Nomads

Written by Josh Spanninga | Monday, 24 March 2014 14:10 |

The husband-and-wife duo known as Jucifer lives and breathes music. If anyone needs proof of this notion they need only to look at the band's tour schedule, which has been nonstop since they took on a nomadic lifestyle in 2001.

Written by Jayson Bussa | Wednesday, 05 March 2014 20:10 |

 The Joe Marcinek Band is an ever-evolving musical entity.

On March 6, the Crown Point, Ind.-based funky jazz group will return to Kalamazoo.

Good Day Good Sir: Luke Nowland's one-man show

Written by Jayson Bussa | Friday, 07 February 2014 13:18 |

Technically, Luke Nowland is a one-man band, but don't expect him to take the stage with a bass drum strapped to his back, kazoo in his mouth and cymbals between his legs. He's no that kind of one-man band. Nowland is currently the sole musician behind Grand Rapids-based indie rock outfit Good Day Good Sir. Luckily, he knows plenty of wildly taltented dudes to back him up when he takes the stage.

Written by Jayson Bussa | Thursday, 09 January 2014 22:07 |

Klay Fennema doesn’t mind letting people in on his dirty little secret. “I am not even ashamed to admit that we all have shopped in the ladies department for clothing before,” he said with a laugh. That’s just one of the prices that Fennema and his band have paid to resurrect the hair metal of yesteryear.

West & Run defines itself with latest release, New Kid

Written by Jayson Bussa | Monday, 09 December 2013 12:41 |

Ryley Grayson doesn’t like to get caught up in discussion about labels or musical genres. Him and his band, West & Run, just want to play the music they like and let the cards fall where they may. Alive and kicking in one form or another for the last three years, West & Run has toiled away in the West Michigan music scene, slinging a high-energy, peppy brand of rock that many might call pop rock.

Written by Jayson Bussa | Wednesday, 06 November 2013 15:40 |

A lot of bands charge out of the gates, ready to take on the world. A frantic pace and sky-high expectations might be kosher for some, but it doesn't really fit the M.O. of Grand Rapids-based synth rock band Archery. This band is slow and plodding, meticulously mapping out their musical route.
